Royal AM FC vs Sekhukhune utd war far from being over?



Royal AM Chairman Shauwn Mkhize has vowed to fight for her team’s Prime Ministers until the bitter end.

Royal AM finished in the national first division of the season, but Sekhukhune United was granted by the Premier Soccer League 3 points following Polokwane City’s conviction that the GladAfrica Championship was violated earlier in the season.

The on-going struggle over this issue is likely to delay the promotional delegation and perhaps also the Premiership and NFD seasons of 2021/22.

ROYAL AM won’t do anything about it.

Mkhize insists that even if Saturday’s arbitration proceedings are not completed, the Royal AM will continue to fight the law.

“I apologize for being late in arriving. I had to run away from the audience, fighting for our cup since I think we have won fairly in the field, and we (are) at the top, now others want to win in court,” said Mkhize.

“We are champions, whatever happens. The league won’t start on time when we don’t win the case.”

At an eThekwini Municipality Gala Dinner on Friday, acting CEO of the Premier Soccer League, Mato Madlala, confirmed that the decision will be announced on Saturday, 12 June, celebrating the successful seasons of AmaZulu, Golden Arrows and Royal AM.

“I know that the media wants to know about the latest case. We don’t know, and tomorrow we’ll know,” said Madlala.

The issue in part stems from Polokwane City’s breach of the rules, but the PSL triggered this debacle when they chose to call on their disciplinary board not to grant Sekhukhune United match points.

This week, Royal AM revealed its involvement with high-profile Advocate Dali Mpofu, known for his former function as National Chairman of the Economic Freedom Fighter, and also the work of Kagiso Rabada in his 2018 challenge against the suspension of the ICC.
